We took a little trip today to a farm about 10 minutes from Rupanyup to pick up some pea-straw bales. It was a huge farm, with a friendly dog and chickens. We got 13 bales of straw to take home with us all for only $45! What a bargain! We'll be right for pea-straw for quite some time now! See, there are benefits to living out country. ;)
Thanks much to Michael and Mum for the loan of the truck. There are a few times when the little Daihatsu won't quite do the job.
Ignore the mess in that shed - the green bath is not yet being used by worms, and everything else is just waiting for a purpose.
I've planted a couple more potatoes in cages by the corn, and hopefully they'll survive. We've ran out of chip-oil for trapping the earwigs - looks as though we're going to have to make a lot more chips - and soon. :)
I'll be sure to take a pic of the worms tomorrow - they're doing really well. We've changed the way we feed them - we now use a food processor to chop the food scraps nice and small, and it works quite well. They can eat a lot more, and much quicker. We're now using all the parts of the worm farm, and they produce quite a bit of worm juice for the garden.
